Sun, Moon and Uranus are in house 5 – Wall Street, the market, those who invest and speculate, schools children, entertainment, sport and sex.
House 5 dominates and forecasts major domestic events involving the stock market (earth-shaking down and up movements), schools, children, teenagers, sport and entertainment.
Uranus forecasts a sudden shock, a sensational exposé/sex scandal, unrest and widespread protesting
Mars – the cusp ruler of house 5 – is conjunction Saturn and Pluto in house 2 (finances, spending and banks) so the stock market turmoil is caused by financial problems, illegal financial deals, hush money payments or financial difficulties involving a bank.
